Compagnia delle Vigne
tells the story of this corner of Irpinia set, today as in the past, among beautiful vineyards, as recalled in the historic records written during the reign of the Kingdom of Naples.
There are many references to the village of Montefusco, the Capital at the time of the Principality of Ultra
(today the Province of Avellino), which had "two hundred and seventeen localities including Towns, Land and Farmhouses" under its jurisdiction. Dr. Francesco Sacco Abate described these rural lands in the geographical-historical-physical dictionary published in 1795 which was given as a gift to the Archduchess of Austria, D. Maria Clementina, on behest of the King.
To Her Royal Highness the Archduchess of Austria, D. Maria Clementina, Royal Princess of Naples.
"The King has deigned to allow Your Lordship to dedicate to HRH the Royal Princess Archduchess D. Maria Clementina the fourth volume of your Geographic Dictionary of the Kingdom, a work both new and useful; by Royal Order and with my Royal pleasure I congratulate Your Lordship on your intelligence: you are hereby informed that the presentation of the Volumes to our Royal Persons should be arranged through the appointed Royal Secretariat of State of the Royal House.
